This slide board has been specially cut to shape so that it can get under the occupant and go around awkward angles, such as the door way in a car. The self lubricating plastic board is very flexible and this allows the slide board to bend on a slope if one surface is higher or lower that the car seat. The size of the slide board is 550mm X 1600mm and 4.5mm thick. Kit includes Car Slider Straps and Video.

Method of Use

Adjust the round seats forward and tilt their backs to allow more space for the carer to maneuver in the rear seat. Open all car windows to keep the car interior cool. Through the open windows, other carers have additional access, regardless if the doors are open or shut.
1. Fit car slider straps (if used)
2. Place the emergency slide board under the patients buttocks. Select the wider sections of the board for most transfer options, or the narrower board sections if the wider sections do no fit easily inside the car.
3. Adjust the bed/trolley to the appropriate height and push up into the open doorway of the car.
4. The carer who will be pulling the patient, should stand as close to the bed as possible and observe good manual handling practices.
5. The second carer should be positioned inside the car, to look after the patient's head. They should gently guide the patient and ensure that the board does not slip into the car's foot well.
